Situated in the Red Sea, Tawila Island is one of the most beautiful spots in Egypt. It’s easily accessible yet remains relatively untouched, with its pristine beaches and breathtaking views. From its fantastic snorkeling and diving spots to its unique flora and fauna, this new resort is taking full advantage of what makes the island so attractive. It’s no surprise it’s being called “the Maldives of Egypt.”

One of the main (and most obvious) attractions at Tawila Island Red Sea Resort is its spectacular beaches. With crystal clear waters and white sand, these beaches certainly rival those in the Maldives. Not only can you soak up some sun on the beach, but there are also a variety of water activities like snorkeling and diving. The waters surrounding Tawila are known for their abundance of colorful coral reefs and marine life — including sea turtles, dolphins, starfish, eels, barracudas — so there’s plenty to see when you dive into the depths.

Tawila isn’t just about nature, either. It has plenty to offer culturally as well. There are several historic monuments located around the island that date back thousands of years, like ancient tombs carved into rock formations or excavated ruins from former civilizations. Plus, there are several museums located here too that provide insight into local history—from prehistoric times to modern day Egyptian culture. And if you’re looking for souvenirs or crafts to bring home with you, look no further than the many local markets scattered around town.

There’s even a spa onsite that offers various treatments including thermal baths, massage therapy, and facial treatments to help relax and rejuvenate after an eventful day at sea or around town. Our experienced therapists ensure that all guests receive top quality service with excellent results.
